Polly Packages 2011

I have coloured up Stamping Bella's Polly Packages every year for the past three years (I think) and each card I make I like better than the one before it. Hmmmm....could be with all the cards I have been colouring over the years I think I may be getting better at it. I've said it before, but it never hurts to repeat it....PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!!! It really does make a difference. You'll find your groove, settle into your style and when that light bulb goes off it will become much easier when you find YOUR comfort zone.


This year I gave her a rustic feel and paired her up with Basic Grey's 6x6 Wassail paper and coloured her with the following copic markers:

E000, 00, 11, 41, 42, 43, 44, 49
E04, 07, 09, 30, 33, 37, 55, 57
E51, 53, Y11, 26, 28, R22, 35, 39
G40, 8, YG61, 67, BG93, 96

WHEW! That seemed like a lot of colours for a tiny chichiboulie. I added some sparkle around her with Hero Arts glitter and going with that rustic feel I pulled out my JudiKins Straw speckles to sprinkle at her feet. One thing you should know...it is best to use some Ranger Glossy Accents, or something similar, to glue down these heavier texture sprinkles. AND, in case you are wondering, the holly vine is a Memory Box die.

I'll be back on Friday with my Bellarific challenge card and hmmmmm....did I use texture on that? I can't remember. You'll just have to wait and see.

Later, Linda
